Hi,

I have a long ordinary thread in the forum.

I have now created an article about that matter and I would like to connect the thread to that article. So that the thread is connect as the default comment place for that article. Or else there will be two threads on the matter which is not good!

Is that possible?

Yes it is. Kunena Discuss actually has tooltips on how to do it (just go through the settings).

We have {kunenadiscuss:xxx} rule (check how it should be written), which can be used to assign any topic to the current article. Also make sure that discuss doesn't "close" the topic by allowing to post into infinity.

When you have make the binding between article and kunena discuss, you can safely remove above tag.

PS. tag can also be used to change topic to another.

Didn´t know how it runs.

Have now an article, and merge the create thread with the existing, but that didn´t runs really.
The merge thread have the rule [ article ] 574 [ / article ]" 574 is the ID from the article. But if I´m only (without) merging fill out the code, nothing happens

My plan:
Have an new article and want it connect with a forum discussion.

Is it possible? And how it runs.

Add {kunena_discuss:XXX} into your article where XXX is topic ID. Also remember to check if the feature is enabled.

If it works, you won't see above tag in your article. After getting the binding, you can remove the line.

Struggling myself I found out:

When i go frontend to the forum, to the specific topic, the url looks like this:
/index.php?option=com_kunena&view=topic&catid=15&id=155&Itemid=25

id=155

{kunena_discuss:155} is the right syntax

My surprise was: 155, from Kunena category manager I would have expected 15 (see attachment 1).

I still don't understand! Why 155, where can I find that ID backend???

Now I found where the ID comes from:

It is the ID of the first message of this topic! (Not the ID of the topic, but from first message.) Because topics have no id!

jos_fb_messages

Attachment:
- fraction of forum frontend
- fraction of database
